What is ProTrition?

ProTrition, is a joint venture company owned by Tennessee Farmers Cooperative (TFC) and Purina Animal Nutrition, a division of Land O’ Lakes, supplying feed, premixes, minerals, pet foods, and other animal nutrition products. ProTrition brings together the feed manufacturing resources and purchasing, formulation, support, sales, and service teams from the legacy companies to better serve livestock producers within ProTrition’s geography. The company is headquartered in La Vergne, Tenn. Learn more at https://protritionfeed.com.


ProTrition features brands and products that livestock producers will immediately recognize: Purina Animal Nutrition, Co-op Feeds & Minerals and Cumberland Mills feeds.


Both legacy companies bring a great depth of nutritional expertise to ProTrition. Products will continue to utilize research from the Purina Animal Nutrition Facility in Gray Summit, Mo., and from Cooperative Research Farms (CRF), an international partnership of prominent feed manufacturers of which TFC has been a member for more than 55 years. Current nutritionists from the legacy companies will continue to work on behalf of ProTrition.

Our Facilities

ProTrition operates four feed manufacturing facilities in Tennessee: the three mills previously operated by TFC at Jackson, La Vergne, and Rockford, and Purina’s mill in Nashville. The Nashville mill is devoted to the production of non-ionophore feeds to add an additional level of safety for ionophore sensitive species. Additions at all mills will allow for growth and value to our customers. The Tenco feed mill at Rockford will be expanded to have a devoted mineral manufacturing line for Purina Animal Nutrition and Co-op minerals.
